B-jtlku’s Dutch Gap Canal.—Gen. Butler seems to have effected a good work in the interest of Richmond, in improving the nav igableness of the James River. A Richmond correspondent says: The Dutch Gap Canal, which on account of prejudice against its projector seems to have passed into oblivion, is being practical ly and succssfully tested by the boats of Gen. Terry and Col. Brown. The 8. O. Pierce, a side-wheel steamer drawing five and a half feet and forty-three feet wide, lias made three trips up and down the river within the river within the past two weeks, using the canal without the slightest difficulty; saving iu two minutes an hour and a half sail; the river was at its ordinary stage; a dredging machine in a week would make this famous cut useful to the largest vessels ever coming up the river. LFrom the New York Worid.J Ilow tiie Englbli Amuse Themselves, Our English cousins arc never weary of holding up their hands in holy horror at our American recklessness of human life. Our steamboat racings t>u the Mississippi make the elnel burdcu of the lectures we receive on mis score, and we have neither the disposi tion nor the right to deny that human life is too often lightly estimated and lightly risked in America. But we do decidedly object lo British ser mons on this subject. In the face of the pic ture which every “Derby Day” holds up for ttie contemplation of mankind, such sermons from such a source are altogether intolerable. Nowhere else in the modern world, proba bly, is there to be found such a “scattering ol death in sport ” as the road from Loudon to Epsom witnesses on that great English carnival; and to say that humau liie is prop erly prized and respected by the people who annually make such an exhibition ot them selves, is a piece of hypocritical impertinence. The last "Derby Day,” fatuous tor the vic tory of a French noise over liis British com petitors on tlieir own ground, is described in the Loudon journals as having been unusual ly quiet, anil so free from excitement as to be almost “seedy." Yet in a single English pa per, which by no means proiesses to give a complete list of tbe day’s mishaps, we find a long chapter of latal accidents recorded. In another journal we have au account of the killing of a lady, who was hurled violent ly out of the carriage in which she was sit ting by a tour-horse “drag," driven by an of ficer of the Queen’s army. The same papers wuicli recite these outrages ou civilization relate the successful issue of the “French Derby,” near Pans, and aie compelled to ad mit that, notwithstanding the immense con course of vehicles of all sorts by which the French race* was attended, no accident of any importance whatever marred the plea suie and brilliancy of the day. All over the continent, indeed—in Germa ny, in liaiy, in France—popular festivals are nut only vastly more common and vastly more animated than in England, but they l ick eutiiely that quality of brutality wliicfi pisgraoos all the outbursts of popular spirit in Great Britain, and compel the inquiry whether, alter ail, aud in spite of the refine ment aud cultLatinn of so large a portion of lur upper and middle classes, tne institutions ot England have not maintained tue bulk of her people iu a kind of moral barbarism. To find any just parallel to such a sketch of a quiet Derby day, as we have here taken from Laglisli papers, we certainly must go back to the feudal ages, wheu death was in every sport, and the story of every year vindicated Sir YVttlter Scott’s summing up of tfie tour nament of Ashby: “ Thus euded tne memorable field of Ash by de la Zouclie, one of the most gallantly contested tourneys of that age ; for although only four knights, including one who was smothered by the heat of Lis armor, had died upon the field, yet upward* of thirty - were desperately wounded, four or live of whom never recovered. Several more were dis abled for life; aud those who escaped best carried the marks of ihe contlict to the "rave with them. Hence it is always mentioned in ilie old records as the ‘ Gentle and Joyous (Passage of Arms of Ashby! ’ ” (From the N< w York World.} THE CASE OF WALTERS. Hb Sentence (on,muted to Imprkenmenl for Life—lion Ue Received the Yew*. Yesterday afternoon Sheriff Kelly received a letter from jGovcrnor Fenton commuting the sentence of Charles 11. Walters, who was to be hung to-day, to imprisonment tor life. The unlortunate man did not seem to expect that his life Mould he spared, aud when Mr. Sutton, the warden of the City Prison, ap proached bis cell, and announced ttie timely clemency which saved him from a disgrace ful death, he became for a few moments ab sorbed in wonder and gratitude, and then lalteri and out his thanks for the efforts of his friends At lour o'clock our reporter visited the prisoner, in company with Air. Sutton Having come out of his cell, and leaned lei surely against its irou door, he spoke more freely about his crime and the fate he had been awarded. “ I cannot thank yon or Judge Stewart too much,” he said, addressing Mr. Sutton; “hut can you tell me how I obtained such friends ?” Mr. Sutton—“ By your good conduct here: by your penitence, aud your determination to meet your fate like a nian.” “ Yes, I was ready to meet my fate. I ex pected death. You know when my mother and sisters came to see me, I told them we should meet no more on earth. But I don’t know how I made such friends.” Mr. Sutton—“ There were many who inter ested themselves in your behalf. One gentle man from Missouri and another from New Orleans went to the Governor to obtain mer cy for you. The Mayor of the city and the press were ready to aid you, because your conduct and case excited sympathy.” “I thank them all,” said Walters, fervent ly; “but you know the reason why I was ready to meet death ?” Mr. Sutton—“ Why?” Walters—“ Because I felt I had disgraced my family.” “That is a good teeling,” said a gentleman present. Mr. Sutton—“You cannot imagine the ef forts which were made to save you from death. A| young lady was preparing to go to Albany this evening to plead for you lie lore the governor; aud I must communicate the news to her, or she will leave on her mission.” Walters—“ Well, I’m to go to prison for life. ” Mr Sutton—“ Yes ; you will he soon sent to the state prison. But rememaer that if you act there as you have done here, you will he treated kindly. The warden in Sing Sing will do all in his power to make your condi tion as comfortable as the rule up there will allow, if you act like a man." Walters—“lm not myself when I give trouble anywhere. Wbeu I committed the crime which brought me here I was not the Walters that you see me now.” Here one of the officers of the prison hand ed Mr. Sutton an “extra” containing the sentence of death on the conspirators at Washington. Walters looked at the paper eagerly, and read the headings aloud. “Now," said Mr. Sutton, “your life has been spared. Prove yourself worthy, as you have done, of the mercy extended to you. “I will,” said Walters, The prisoner then grasped the hand of the wardon with cordia 1 energy, and returned to his cell. Having left the man who an hour before was recorded in prospective, a legal corpse, we east our eyes around the narro w yards of the Tombs to search for the scat!old. It had been removed from the place of dearth. En tering the store-room we discovered a piece of mortuary furniture, on which the living prisoner could have read his epitaph. Rest ing on a few rough Mocks appeared a heavy pine coffin, more handsomely mounted than those in which the bodies of murderers are generally placed. A pillow of shavings and linen bad been made in it on which the head of the dead Walters was to sleep till judment. Having removed a dusty sable cloth from the lid, an oval plate was exposed to view, which contained the epitaph of a living man: Charles H. Walters. (Cross.) Died Juue 23, 18G5. j Aged 32 years. v —> Rarely has a man been nearer death. Eveu the hearse which was to carry his body to the grave in a distant cemetery, was in readiness when the respite, which preceded the com mutation of his sentence, was received through the efforts of Judge Stewart. Interview Between Senator Sumner and tlie President. tCorrespomlenee of the Cincinnati Inquirer.] A fricud at Washington assures us that a few weeks since au intciview took place be tween President Johnson aud Senator Sum ner, which was substantially as follows: “ Good evening, Mr. President,” said Sen ator Sumner, last week, upon entering the President’s room iu the White House. “Good evening, Mr. Senator,” replied the President. “ Please be seated for a moment until I finish a letter to au old friend.” The letter being fiuislied, the President turned to Mr. Sumner, when the latter said : “ Mr. President, I have called upon you for the purpose of expressing to you the views of our people on the subject of recon struction.” “ Well, sir," replied the President. Mr. Sumner commenced by sayiug, “Sir, your North Carolina proclamation does not meet ttie approbation of the people, and they will not submit to have the great re sults of the war thus thrown away.” “What people are you representing, sir?” asked Mr. Johnson. “Tim whole Noithern people” said Mr. Sumner. “I apprehend you will And you represent a small portion of the Northern people,” re plied Mr. Johnson. “Then,” said Sumner, “we must take, your North Carolina proclamation as an indication of your policy, must we?” ““Yes sir,” replied the President. “Then, sir,” said Sumner “vou do not in tend to enfranchise the black man ?” “I have nothing to do with the subject; that exclusively belongs to the States. You certainly would think it a usurpation on my pin tis I attempted to interfere iu fixing the qualifications of elector in Massachusetts.” “But,’’ replied Summer, “Massachusetts his always been a loyal State.” “Jhit may lie,’ replied the President, “but the loyal men of the South have made untold sacr,flees for their Union sentiments, while Massachusetts lias made hundreds of millions out of her loyalty ; and it w ould be a poor return for Southern adherence to the gov ernment if the tatter should, in violation of the Constitution, thruM upon them local laws iu opposition to their wishes.” At ttiis reply of the President Mr. Summer became impatient and irritable, aud rejoiped by saying, “I am sorry to see you evincing so little sympathy with that element that placed you in power.” At this the color flashed to tin* President’s face, and he added, emphatically, ou and I might as well understand each other uow as any other time. You are aware, sir, I have no respect lor a secessionist ; I still have a greater detestation and contempt tor a fanatic.” “Good evening," said Summer, and left in a hull. n r; ad iix g . Hour to Read with Profit—What to Read. [From the American Monthly ] Reading should be avoided when it inter feres with necessary repose, as it does when pursued at a late hour of night. It then has a pernicious influence upon the health first, then upon the spirits, then upon the mind itself The knowledge gained in this way i9 for the most part hut of little value, for it is gained at the expense of mental vigor, and sometimes even ot life itself. The celebrated Wm. Pinckney, the great Maryland orator, tell a sacrifice to late reading. To read when you ought to be in bed, especially to read when in bed, is to inflict a great evil ou your self without an equivalent. It is to injure your brain, your nervous system, your in tellect. SLEEPr READERS. A person mentally indolent may be fond of reading. He may love to read in a recum bent posture uutil he falls asleep, every day or every night of his life. It might be too much to say that his room resembles the famous cave of the God of Sleep. But he furnishes proof in his experience, that the leaves of a hook are as sure an opiate as the leaves of the poppy, the symbol of that god. Indeed, we have known tho.-e who regularly take a book to bed with them every night, as “ a shoe-horn to puli on the sleep with. ” Indeed, we have seen a whole family, eacli with a book iu baud, to which he seemed to be bowing in devotion, except one bright young girl, who archly sung: “We are all noddin', nid, aid, noddin.’; We are all noddin' at our house at home." CONVERSATION In order to profit from reading, it is ad vantageous to converse with those who have read the same books, or are interested in the same topics. Two persons of equal capacity shall read the same book, aud yet receive from it very different impressions. By ex changing their views in the commerce of thought, each is a gainer. The difficulties which one meets with are solved by the other, and the truths upon which they agree are more firmly fixed in the minds of each. By thus bringing their minds iu Contact with each other, in conversation upon the work, their feelings are warmed into more vigorous exercise, and by the collision of their opin ions the light of truth is struck out. More over, by conversing concerning the hooks tiiat you read with those that are older and have read more than yourselves, aud have had better opportunities for observation, you will be better able to form a correct estimate of what you read. Their experience will help to guard you against errors and evil tendencies of the work, or enable you to ap preciate its excellencies. A SPECIAL SYSTEM. And here I may with advantage quote the example of u distinguished scholar of our own country. 1. Before I commenced an author, I made myself thoroughly master of the whole scheme of his work, if the table ot contents enabled me to do so. 2. I then studied the author in the follow ing manner: After reading tbe first sentence, I meditated on it, developing the author's thoughts as well as I was able, and reducing the whole, as nearly as possihle, to a single distinct concise expression. I then read the second sentence, aud did the same. I next compared the two sentences*’together, medi tating on them, and gathering out of them their substance. Thus I went through the pa, graph, and reflected ou the whole until I had reduced it to a single sentence, con taining its essence. I then studied the next paragraph in like.manner; aud having com pared the two, I gathered out of them their substance. The same plan was followed in the comparison of sections with sections, and chapters with chapters, bboks with books, until the author was finished. 3. A third rule was to pass nothing unex amined, nothing without reflection, whether iu poetiy or fiction, history or travels, poli tics, philosophy, or religion. Nor ought I omit the three rules of Professor Whitaker, ot Cambridge, given to John Boyse, one of the eminent translators of the Bible in the time ot James the First. 1. To study chiefly standing or walking. 2. Never to study at a window. 3. Not to go to bed, on any ac count with cold feet. WHAT TO READ- Are you deficieut.in taste ? Read the best English poets, such as Gray and Goldsmith, Pope and Thomson, Cowper and Coleridge, Scott and Wordsworth. Are you deficient in imagination ? Read Chilling worth, and Lason, aud Locke. Are you deficient in judgment and good sense iu the common affairs of life ? Read Franklin. Are you deficient in sensibility ? Read (ioetlie and Mackcusie. Are you deficient in vigor of style ? Read Junius and Fox. Are you deficient in political knowledge ? Read Montesquieu, the “Federalist,” YVeb ster, and Calhoun. Are you deficient in patriotism? Read Demosthenes, and the “Lite of YVasiiington ” Are you deficient in conscience? Read some of I resident Edwards’s works. Are you deficient in piety? R ea( j the Bible.

A New York paper says: The ship, formerly the Falcon steamer, now known as the Nightingale, in honor of the distinguished Englishwoman whose services in the cause ot humanity have earned for her so extended a reputation, is now moored in the Erie basin, at South Brooklyn. Her ap pointments for hospital service are of the most complete character; she has accommo dations for over one hundred patients, and the results of the five years’ trial of this sys tem of a floating hospital are most gratifying. The ratio of mortality has been reduced to 22 per cent, less than one-half the average under tbe old system ot shore hospitals. Drs. Bell and Wallsir, the physicians in charge, gave a most interesting statement of their experi ence in the treatment of this mo9t formidable disease, and stated their entire confidence in their ability, under the system of treatment now employed, to prevent the spread of the disease to the harbor of New Yflik. A public writer thinks that much might be gained if speakers would observe the mil ler’s creed—always shut the gate when the grist is out. . That is another form of the Scotchman’s advice to a public speaker— “never to begin till ye hae something to say, and be sure to sit down as soon as ye hae done.” —Mr. Mason Jones, well known in this epuntry a9 a popular lecterer and friend of our Government, is one of the candidates for a seat in the British Parliament, with fair chances of success. —Thomns Sinclair, a clothier in Pittsburg, charged with fraudulent returns, has been fined S3OOO and costs by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue.
